Overview of key international factors affecting Indonesian palm oil demand, including biofuel and trade policies and other market drivers


Summary of the progress towards and challenges to the commercialization of sustainable alternative aviation fuels.


Details on the latest measures that select European Union member states are taking to support advanced alternative fuels


Assesses evidence for defining high and low indirect land-use change risk biofuel feedstocks in the European renewable fuel policy


Fact sheet regarding the impact of high and low indirect land-use change definitions in European Union renewable fuel policy


Estimates the cost-effectiveness, greenhouse gas savings, and additional technical potential for using renewable methane from sustainable feedstocks in France, Italy, and Spain in 2030


Summarizes ICCT research on the 2050 potential for low-carbon renewable methane in the EU


Sustainable renewable methane can make a small contribution to decarbonizing the EU energy economy but can deliver stronger GHG reductions in the power sector compared to heating and transport.


Key findings regarding the potential of electrofuels as part of a decarbonization strategy in the European Union.


Projects potential volumes and GHG impacts of electrofuels in the European Union to 2030


Assessment of the potential of used cooking oil as a biofuel feedstock in Indonesia


Overview of the transport fuels provisions in the final EU Renewable Energy Directive for 2021-2030.


This report assesses progress in 2018 toward implementing the Climate and Clean Air Coalition's global strategy to introduce low-sulfur fuels and cleaner diesel vehicles.


Reviews the impact of mid-level biodiesel blends on materials and emissions in conventional diesel vehicles in the Indonesian context.


Following a similar move by Beijing, 27 cities in China implemented stringent new vehicle fuel standards in October 2017 as a step toward reducing air pollution in heavily populated areas. These cities put the China VI fuel requirements into effect about 15 months before the national deadline and applied the new fuel standard to non-road equipment ahead of the national schedule.


Ramping up HEFA+ deployment in aviation would likely create competition for feedstocks between aviation and renewable diesel in the road sector. It could also result in indirect land-use change from the increased use of food crops to create renewable diesel and HEFA+, thereby undermining the climate benefits of AJF deployment. 


A summary of Canada’s proposed federal clean fuel standard structure based on proposals from Environment and Climate Change Canada and the potential impacts of not addressing indirect land-use change.


Evaluates the costs and benefits of using contracts for difference (CfDs) to support the production of bio-CNG from dairy farms in California.


Reviews evidence on the environmental risks of growing lignocellulosic energy crops for biofuel production and policy ideas to address them.
